Known globally as “The Biggest Little City in the World,” Reno often gets overlooked for its larger neighbor, Las Vegas. In reality, it couldn’t be more different. While it’s true that Reno has its own legacy in the land of bachelor parties and casinos, there’s a lot more to it than first meets the eye. With its own tendency for the unique that rivals Portland, Oregon, there are more things to do in Reno than you’ll even have time for.


1. Go Kayaking at Whitewater Park

Whether you're a seasoned kayaker or wanting to try it for the first time, Reno provides tons of water-sporting options. Whitewater Park is at the heart of downtown Reno in the middle of Wingfield Park. Since its installation, the whitewater park has given those who live in Reno a slice of non-casino excitement. Every summer, crowds of people head to the park to picnic, raft, or wave, but it's open all year round. Kayaking, however, is the park's greatest gift and allows you to rent a kayak even if you've never done it before. There's no better place for beginners than here.
